MMHS facilities are nestled in southern Monterey County in the bountiful Salinas Valley. Dubbed the “salad bowl of the nation” by John Steinbeck the valley begins just south of San Ardo, framed by the inner coastal ranges of the Santa Lucia range to the west and the Gablian Range to the east, with the northern reaches ending at the mouth of the Salinas River at Monterey Bay.

The towns of King City and Greenfield are about an hour’s drive from the Monterey Peninsula; world-famous for its scenery, beaches, wines, the renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row and more. With so much right in our backyard, many adventures await you and your family.
